A just launched product (September 5, 2012) that is essentially a stand for your Apple TV and its remote control. It’s made out of one piece of wood and I actually have a prototype (of sorts) that I have been using for quite some time now.

The Bloc seeks to solve one main problem (for me at least): keeping your Apple TV squared up with the edge of the surface that it is on. My Apple TV was always being pulled to one angle or another and while this doesn’t effect the operation, it sure bugged the crap out of me.

I’ve since switched to a new stand for my TV, with glass shelves that hold the Apple TV in position, so I don’t use my Bloc anymore, but it certainly is exactly as described. I think the stand looks nice, but I always wanted it to be a bit thinner. However, I am not sure if that would keep the Apple TV still or not, so I assume this thickness was chosen for a reason.

One last note: I think this could be a nice stand if you use an Apple TV in a conference room setting, because it keeps the remote nicely docked next to the Apple TV.
